Thanks for the help folks. Doesnt appear to be leaking from the main seal/bearing, but from the top from the breather valve. And only saw it once. I'll definately look at the oil and magnetic plug for sure.
On the radio w/ cassette, I run my iphone thru it using a 3.5mm plug attached to a dummy cassette (find one in any radio accessory isle). Works fine w no issues! I'd hate to dump the factory radio if there's nothing wrong w it. I'm a fan of 'if the electrical is working, leave it alone"...
Motorcycling is not, of itself inherently dangerous. It is,however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence, or stupidity.
